First Class Award Space - Last Minute

Hi there, wife and I flying from DC to Japan this weekend and unfortunately due to some name change issues and rewards bookings through Virgin Atlantic, we are now split up to one in First Class and one in Economy.
There are 3 first class seats available for purchase as of now and upon calling ANA, they said that there are 0 people on the awards waitlist.

Any idea when/if these seats would be released to awards? Anyone have any last minute success stories?
If they don't release them, is there a chance of upgrading at the airport upon asking? (It's our honeymoon)

Thanks all!

If you do not mind, I do see one business class ticket available on Sunday, maybe try to book that?

ANA would rather fly out with empty F seats than fill it up with last minute redemptions.
You'll have better luck in business class. luck.
